5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Dupont Hwy. | Loockerman, Dover, DE 19901 |

Excellent reception in dover, to include everywhere on base (my bldg is bad for reception with AT&T and Verizon)! Terrible reception anywhere else except Wilmington. We had 4G up until yesterday, we started to receive LTE, but T-Mobile sent me an automated text stating that service will be in and out for the next 3 weeks for reception (Lte) upgrades. If you want a cheaper bill and your looking to get out of your contract and your mostly in the dover area. Or bigger cities, then I'd get tmobile. If you spend a lot of time in the sticks, then stay away from tmobile.

Had to switch from Verizon. Verizon is awful in Delaware. MIssed and dropped calls. Sprint works fine around the AFB and most of Dover. Sure, out in really rural areas I might have 1-2 bars, but it does work. I usually have solid 4-5 bars in any town in Delaware. Much better than Verizon (who everyone has, and everyone complains about around here).

My reception SUCKS! Ever since I moved to DE I lose calls. I wish Sprint would come and put up more towers cause I loved the service in VA and would like to have the same here in DE.

My experience with Verizon has been really good. I get 4 and 5 Bars most of the time which is 4G LTE and really super fast. My internet on my phone is faster than my internet at home. I do have problems with areas like smyrna delaware though. But it's only when I'm in a building, when I'm outside I have no problems at all. I hope this review helped, have a great day.

I get no reception in my house or place of work. If I'm outside it jumps up to 1 to 3 bars of 4G but Internet is very slow. It's probably the phones they sell to. All my co-workers have iPhones and they work perfect. T- Mobil needs to get with the times and give there customers the iPhones. I'm dumping them when my two year intact is up.

Sprint Service is great. I have previously had T-Mobile... WHICH WAS HORRIBLE. I also had Verizon for 2 years before I switched to Sprint to save money. Cell Reception has been fantasic, and Im saving about $50 a month for both lines compared to Verizon. Glad I switched!

My house is about 800 feet from HWY 1, and I cant make a call or receive a call without it being dropped every time, especially in my house. My house is in Base housing on Dover AFB. Dover AFB consist of two sides on the left side is the actual base on which my phone works great, on the base housing side my phone is a lost cause. When I asked Verizon what the deal is, they came up with the lamest excuse " Sir, the base's security inhibits cell phone signal strength. " Me: Thats funny cause when I stand right by the Communications Squadron who if they where doing such a thing, my signal is great, but if I'm in my home I cant even make a call." Verizon: " Well, its more complex than that" Me: Please fix this problem and stop making up stuff that is not true."

Horrible reception in Dover - phone switches to emergency call status only - when I text my children at Dover high and Delaware Tech comm college, will not go through or ring. No evidence of a missed call or text.

I have been with this company for 18 years and have 7 handsets for my business. I called AT&T and they said they are not getting complaints about dropped calls. I have talked to many AT&T customers and they all get the dropped call and then their own voice is echoed back at them. Seriously considering switching to Verizon for the first time.

Switched to Verizon this past weekend. We wanted 3G service where we go most, and AT&T couldn't keep up with that. Verizon service is great and sounds great. Data speeds are fast, and we love out phones.

I lived here for several months and would get a signal, but when I would try to make a call I would just get a fast busy signal and my phone would read call failed. Never had luck with incomming calls either. Everyone that visited with Verizon had the same problem.

Almost all areas around the town of Sandtown, even though there is a new tower within 1 mile of town, and another just 3 miles away in Goldsboro, MD. That is unless you go on top of the landfill.

Tower located at this intersection. Unfortunately, dead spot just south near Moore's Lake (presumably due to dip in elevation).

For being the supposed leader in cellular technology, Verizon wireless sucks. My T-Mobile service was much better when I had it. I used to be a cell tech for Cingular here in Delaware, and I think I'm going to switch back to cingular
